Watching the video she driving like a bat out of hell. With a one year old in the car. Had plenty of chances to pull over but didn’t.
Yeah...all that money collected monthly and they cannot spend $500 or whatever to optimize for smartphones which most people use now? Come on now
Nor could I. She may have used a nickname, though, like “Mimi” or some such.
None of which justifies a single shot being fired. Unless in your value system human life is below obedience to authority.
Her apartment building is three story and sort of old between Bridge Street and Woodside Green, but it all gets to be pretty sorid to pick someone’s life apart at this point.
I am sure we are going to hear about her difficult but struggling to succeed life for a week or two.
Meanwhile the millions of striving thirty-somethings that don’t ram there car into people trying to stop them are going to need to buy Omabacare or get fined and have their tax returns seized when the IRS comes back from unpaid vacation.
114 Woodside Grn Apt 1c Stamford, CT

That is a very good question. Especially knowing her probable Somali descent coupled with that Al HURRAH TV station just happening to be on the scene. There may be much more to this story.
Not sure of the year, but car could gave been a little pricey.
There is plenty more to this story.
Agree. Some missing pieces for sure. She has to be connected to someone else in DC.
Fox reported the first shot fired was by a Secret Service agent. At th 15th and Penn Ave location. That didn’t stop her ..she continued at high speeds and was shot a couple of blocks away- and died.
car could gave been a little pricey
Getting a loan wasn’t a problem. Special class of borrower don’t you know.
“Especially knowing her probable Somali descent coupled with that Al HURRAH TV station just happening to be on the scene. There may be much more to this story.”
Yeah, I caught that, too. Veeeery interesting.
It’s sick and sad and confusing isn’t it?
A 34-year-old black woman with a 2-year-old baby girl, Miriam Carey, a dental hygenist of Somali descent from Stamford Connecticut, was having some sort of mental situation, or was just in the wrong place at the wrong time. We first notice her as she is driving fast on Pennsylvania near the White House security perimeter. There may have been an adult passenger who mouthed off to the cops.
Anyway, somewhere, she stops -- maybe near the White House -- and 6+ cops surrounded her car with guns drawn, about 6 feet away.
I figure the cops started yelling at the woman. They're already freaked out and hopped up, maybe by the 'riods they're probably taking, or maybe the Capital Shield 2014 drill that's going on. The woman maybe yelled incomprehensible things back at the cops. Typical auditory exclusion, no communication.
About then, some idiot cop that had his booger hook on the bang switch probably had a negligent discharge and shot her, a sympathetic nerve reaction. She freaked out, backed up and maybe T-boned a Capitol Police Car.
The woman bugging out made the cops go nuts, like hornets out of a nest. The cops start shooting at the fleeing car, with complete disregard for what's behind it, or who is in it. One of the moron cops hit a stanchion, upending his car, and freaking the other cops out even more.
Meanwhile, the woman shoved it into Drive and bolted, as the Keystone Cops followed like maniacs, around and around the traffic circle, and then they maneuvered her into the Barrycades, and then gunned her down in cold blood.
Nice work, Capitol Police and Secret Service. What a tragedy.
Pretty hard to blame that on the TEA Party.
Sen. Pat Roberts, R-Kan., was in his office in the Hart Building when he heard, “pop, pop, pop, and then pop again.” He thought it was the start of construction and thought, “God, I don’t need this all afternoon.” He said he soon found out that it was gunfire and that he then welcomed 10-15 Capitol visitors to his office when the lockdown order was given.
“I didn’t get my Marine sword down to do battle,” Roberts said. “But I was ready to.”
was shot a couple of blocks away
Not a couple of blocks from the initial shot. Quite a bit more than that. 15 blocks to be precise.
“So she drove to DC from CT alone with her child to crash the WH. AA with Somali descent? There is plenty more to this story.”
Maybe she found out how much Obamacare was going to cost her and wanted to discuss it in person? Not nearly as crazy as it sounds, especially to a crazy person.
So where is the adult passenger?
Al-Hurra is a US government operated news channel. It’s the Iraqi answer to Cuba’s Radio Marti. Declared essential before the shutdown as it falls under the rubric of foreign policy.
